Part I
Line 17

Feeling free

The Count and Countess Larisch had a difficult marriage and Marie enjoyed her time away from the Count. In her book My Past. (1913) she wrote a few paragraphs about spending time away from the Count at her Bavarian mountain home Villa Valerie (in the town of Rottach-Egern, 54 km south of Munich).

Perhaps Marie didn't mention her feelings about being free from her husband in her conversation with Eliot but Eliot MIGHT have picked up this tidbit from My Past at a different time.
